Simple breathing exercise for a more peaceful you

" Place your tongue on the roof of your mouth and hold it there on the inhale. Breathe in very slowly while expanding your belly out as you take breath in, and then shift your tongue to just behind your lower teeth, opening your mouth slightly, and hold it there on the exhale while you let the air make a hissing sound as you release it (your tummy will return inward to a neutral position.) Inhale deeply and exhale even longer allowing sound to escape, if it’s there, because this will relieve tension. Do this at least three times, and then pause for a few seconds holding your breath. Repeat this several times and this technique will reset you, bringing you into composure.

You can also practice this breathing exercise as part of your early morning ritual to get off to a peaceful start and to begin your day anew. The heart of every home can be filled with peace and harmony that begins with you. JUST BREATHE!" -- Kristine Carlson
